It’s fun, when you’re 50, to poke fun at the younger generation. So for my Halloween costume this year I went as a “20 something hipster”. One ironic moustache and several well drawn and/or outdated tattoos later I was a hipster.
It was also a ruse to allow me to talk about craft beer all night – and I brought a lovely one to the party from Lake of Bays – Stamp Hammer oak aged amber lager.
Back to my tattoos for a minute. They were drawn so expertly that everyone assumed they were real. Honestly, the “vital signs” one that flatlines and then says “carpe diem” may become a tattoo if i ever get over my fear of needles and hep b.
Stamp Hammer is only available in October and November so you may want to stop reading now and go the the LCBO. A dark amber, i found it slightly spicy, not overly hopped, and a vanilla from the oak barrels that rounded the lager out into a smooth finish. Everyone loved it.
Also, my spider-web elbow ink rocked.
